"Street vendors are such an important part of LA & Latino culture. I have so many beautiful childhood memories buying from El Paletero, El Carrito De Frutas, El Puesto De Flores. The Los Street Vendors book series celebrates the backbone of our community in a fun and exciting way for children." 
—Julissa Prado, founder & CEO of Rizos Curls

"Mike is a creative genius who has brought humor, nostalgia, and joy to our community with all that he creates!"
—Patty Rodriguez, entrepreneur and bestselling author

"Street vendors are always there to feed and serve our communities and it's never too early to humanize them to children. This book honors their work ethic and recognizes them for the hardworking micro-entrepreneurs that they are. I can't wait to introduce this book to the new generations."
—Bricia Lopez, restaurateur and cookbook author


“Mike Alfaro helps children become Si Sabo Kids with their first words vocabulary, exposing them to the fundamentals of Spanish with objects they see daily…I recommend parents with children from preschool to third grade get these books to begin bridging the language barrier.”
—Readers' Favorite

“A vibrant and colorful bilingual journey for your little ones.”
—Gaby Moreno, Latin GRAMMY™ Award Winning Singer/Songwriter

"As a new mom and author, sharing bilingual books with my daughter is so special. This collection of Sí Sabo Kids will be a staple in our home. They are fun, colorful books that show the beauty of our culture and language."
—Julissa Arce, Author of Someone Like Me
Mike Alfaro is a writer, creative director, and pop-culture fanboy. Born and raised in Guatemala, he moved to California after turning 18 in search of the American dream. How cliché. Since then, he's created several successful ad campaigns for major U.S. brands and also launched the viral Instagram account @millennialloteria. He is happily married and currently developing a movie based on his experiences as a Hispanic millennial immigrant.

Gerardo Guillén is an award-winning Art Director, musician, and professional pizza lover. Bilingual and bicultural, he was born in El Paso but spent most of his youth in Juárez, Mexico. It was cheaper, but he was also "all about that border life." He currently has a chill gig as an Associate Creative Director at a boutique ad agency in Los Angeles, where he lives with his wife and two puppies.
